    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 is gorgeous, complex, intense, and very youthful. Aromatically expressive, I find notes of red and black cherry spice box and cedar. Already elegant and lovely, this cuvée has excellent weight, balanced with firm acidity and a very long finish. Though enjoyable now, it will develop substantially in the years to come, and should easily age for 10-15 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley which contains 5% purchased fruit. Medium ruby in color, it gives up an alluring bouquet of cedar, cinnamon, incense, black raspberry, and black cherry that jumps from the glass. This leads to a dense, ripe, spicy, well-balanced wine with enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years (ageability being a significant trait of the vintage). This lengthy effort will be at its best from 2012 to 2020.

    Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of strawberry, raspberry, licorice, white pepper and Asian spices, plus a whiff of dried rose. Sappy, racy and pure, with sharply delineated flavors of red berries, cherry and spicecake. Comes across as very lively owing to an impression of high acidity. Youthfully tight wine, finishing with excellent purity and energy and a jolt of candied flowers. This will be even better for four or five years in the bottle.

    A pretty if restrained nose blends both upper and lower register red and blue fruit aromas along with a touch of earth that can also be found on the rich, delicious and solidly complex flavors that culminate in a round yet well-delineated as well as an impressively persistent finish. This is really quite good for a so-called entry level wine. This is worth considering. 2013+.

    Pinot Noir is our favorite wine, from our favorite region. Great for special times especially when you have no idea what will be served for dinner. Little pricey for everyday.
